The peace from the steering wheel is often all I have time for. I also use it for pedestrians. I think I wave more to motion drivers to take right of way, and then wave back at them when they wave at me, thanking me.

A bit off topic but the only thing I've noticed since purchasing my Golf a few months ago is on the weekend evenings driving around my hometown if I hit a red light in the 3 lane business district there is almost always someone (probably a teenager) attempting to race me. My car is 100% stock apart from dark window tint but they seem to assume everyone in a Golf or GTI is fair game to mess with.

So you think it's perfectly normal to wave at strangers in traffic just because they're driving the same freaking car you are? And then you get upset when they don't respond in kind?

When I was in Toronto I had some other GTI's wave at me. I awkwardly waved back not knowing it was a thing. I live in a more country area. Not a whole lot of GTI's or even cars of the same class. Just a bunch of lifted Silverado's mostly.

Sometimes get a wave from a fellow R, not so much from GTIs. Not a big waver here, kinda shy . But if I get a wave, I always give wave-back!

You can be both, all by just lifting a finger.

Always get a kick out of this guy. Definition of "stick in the mud" on every single thread.

I'm honestly still unsure whether he really is this big of a squid or if he just posts some of this stuff to stir up the drama.

Either way, it's hilarious.

He's a troll. Trying to reason with him is like wrestling a pig; you both get dirty but he enjoys it. He's argumentative for argument's sake. Adds little. Not sure why he bothers but I suppose the KB is his only friend with an attitude like that. w/e
